Welded upholstery brings the art of woven textiles to coated form using a new fusing technology.
Like the Earth’s core and crust, Welded is multi-layered: colorwork was developed from scratch and
polyester fibers were woven into a ground cloth to create a color-and-weave effect, a technique
where alternating light and dark or contrasting colors of yarns work together to achieve a dimensional effect. The ground cloth is then coated with a clear thermoplastic elastomer, or TPE. Welded’s coating behaves as a clear barrier, making it ink and stain resistant, wipeable, bleach cleanable and highly upholsterable for high traffic areas such as healthcare, education and workplace.
